gentleman

Putting things in order, running like a headless chicken days went by. It’s just a few weeks since Tim pulled up the stakes and moved to this small town of India. Clearly, he didn’t know anyone here from Adams. When his new po-faced neighbour Mr Dixit raved about the girl next door, his heart turnedContinue reading “gentleman”

red wine chocolate cake

One of my 2021 resolution was – write a flash fiction inspired from BJD (Those who haven’t read her yet shall be kept at bay with silent bafflement.) by Helen Fielding, in January 2021. After a few weeks procrastination finally I managed to pen it down. A sharp bend in the midst of the conversation.Continue reading “red wine chocolate cake”

a long-cherished dream

As guests were swarming up, the din was enough to plague a saint. Well, only a saint, because most of them were swaying their asses on DJ. But something seemed off. When they awaited the bride – Lydia, she fiddled while Rome was aflame. Neela raked her head for the probable cause. In case sheContinue reading “a long-cherished dream”

naked bananas!

Ruhela who lived in Bumthali, was staring at the neighbouring girl. She winked at Ganitha and whispered something in her ears and they convulsed with laughter. She picked up an orange and licked lustfully then peered at the girls’ breasts for some time and tried to study the direction where her gazed roamed. Ganditha lickedContinue reading “naked bananas!”

same words different people

At the year-end with many thought-provoking and humorous posts, I felt inspired to pen this oneliner. Thank you so much Alex Markowich for the story. When I stumbled upon this post I instantly burst into laughter. That’s because we (using for ‘only I‘. So what? Everyone stretches the truth once in a while!) used toContinue reading “same words different people”

relationships of convenience

“Does he venture to the craft of words, any art?” “They’re masters of another art. He has different stories for different places including home. It helps them honestly exploit and abuse all relationships to an extent, including spouse.” “Not being honest or loyal is nothing new. Did he tell her about cancer?” In the balmyContinue reading “relationships of convenience”

life lessons

Winters, during those days, didn’t use to strike bleakly and stodgy food didn’t scare the hell out of you. I was lost in my thoughts when, all of a sudden, a car stopped alongside in the proximity with Vedna, Bunny and their irrefutable team poking their heads out of the window and calling out ourContinue reading “life lessons”

new year’s doldrums

Christmas is thin on the ground, Rehana surmised. After two days of deliberation, she threw another glance at Bridget Jones’s list of Dos & Don’ts for her New Year Resolution. Which one to leave out? She was still swinging on the horns of dilemma… Don’ts: Spend more than earn. Behave sluttishly around the house, butContinue reading “new year’s doldrums”

misunderstandings

“He gotta decide that you didn’t. Their superpower. Suddenly, you are guided concerning what you should like. Oh, it shouldn’t have been…” Surpa bit her tongue. She could be on thin ice or the fate awaited her? She must toe the line. She snuck a few oranges from their orchard and it landed her inContinue reading “misunderstandings”
